Many RadiatorEdit

User:Many Radiator, in spite of having two prior blocks on his record for uploading here non-free logo images of radio & television stations and claiming them as his “own work”, continued uploading copyright-infringing images to the Commons. Checking his lengthy Talk page, it’s quite obvious that he does not read the messages and warnings left there, much less respond to them. So, here I am asking for a third and final (permanent) block on his account. ‐⁠‑🌀⁠SilSinnAL982100💬 20:36, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Most logos are too simple for copyright protection, so they are not copyvios. Taivo (talk) 10:47, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

{{PD-USGov-NIH}}Edit

Request lowering to semi-protection. Since it is duplicate with {{PD-USGov-HHS-NIH}}, I would like to merge them. --A1Cafel (talk) 02:44, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Unprotection of File:Wikibooks text logo.svgEdit

Hello!

I don't think this file, which is only used once, on a Wikipedia user talk page, needs to be protected.Jonteemil (talk) 15:34, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

A886 road (Scotland), page moveEdit

Hi

Can the above page be moved to "A886 road" from "A886 road (Scotland)" to match the Wikipedia page. RegardsLITTLE LUGS (talk) 08:11, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

@LITTLE LUGS:Hello, You're really in the wrong place to ask for this, but our convention is to disambiguate road numbers by country even if there is no other road of the same number anywhere. This is to have a consistent naming scheme and preempt the building of a road with the same number in some other country, which would cause us problems. So I would advise against renaming.

User:Aars2020 is another sockpuppet of banned user User:Fona2000Edit

Hi. Fyi: User:Aars2020 is a new account uploading copyvios, which is then used by banned user Fona2000 on dawiki. Old pattern, seen before. Regards KnudW (talk) 23:14, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
